Men: The final phase of feminism

October 29, 2013 Bonnie Erbe'

The final stage of feminism is something I call, “masculism.” If women are ever to reach true parity, men must be on board. These are the conclusions I’ve reached after spending time this week at a US Institute for Peace Symposium on Men, Peace and Security.

I coined the term masculism to describe the male version of feminism. According to research produced for the symposium, and contrary to popular opinion, men are not innately much more prone to violence than are women. This finding alone is trail-blazing and defies common stereotypes. Further, men’s engagement in violent conflict is seen by researchers as a form of victimization of men, much as women are victimized by male chauvinism.

Getting the Edge

October 29, 2013 Senator Kirsten Gillibrand at the EDGE luncheon

Gender equality is also a significant goal for corporations because its not only the right thing to do, it’s good for the bottom line. But how can companies measure progress?  A Swiss Foundation says it has a method that enables large businesses to gauge advancement regarding gender equality.  The EDGE Certified Foundation just announced the first companies to be certified to the EDGE Global Standard for workplace equality.

BY BONNIE ERBE'

If you haven’t seen the series of powerful ads created this week by UN Women, you should take a look. (http://www.unwomen.org/en) The gender equality arm of the United Nations commissioned ad agency Ogilvy & Mather Dubai to produce the campaign. It’s executives typed in provocative phrases such as “women cannot”, “women should,” “women need to,” and “women cannot” and used Google’s autocomplete function to see what followed. Google was used (as opposed to Chrome or DuckDuckGo or others) because it is the world’s most popular search engine.
